The Lich King

Submitted by Kwaliti
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
There he is, the Lich King himself.

Give credit where credit is due. I'd like to thank everybody for their input and help during the making this model.

P.S. Don't even think about complaining about the poly count -- you're basically supposed to have only one Lich King in your map. The same goes for file size -- If you want a crap texture, feel free to drop the quality.

P.P.S. If you play the Walk animation in Magos, it will glitch near the right shoulder. Ignore it. In-game there's no glitch.

THIS IS FOR ALL THOSE NAY-SAYERS: THIS IS NOT A WOW MODEL. NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY, YOU ARE UNABLE TO PROVE YOUR STATEMENT. I CAN PROVIDE ~10 WIP FILES AND WILL ENJOY CRUSHING YOUR CLAIMS TO DUST.

Just saving myself time to reply to all those worthless posts.

    I think this is the best model on hive! 5/5
    Put I think you could actually improve the Frostmourne a bit more ;)
    Maybe giving it abit more teal color in it and make it little longer.

    Epic win, except the sword which looks like an excalibur or some other thing, certainly not frostmourne.

    This model takes up around 230 kb, after reducing the quality of the texture.
    So it is not that much space, compared to how awesome it is.
    I like it how the sword looks so much like Frostmourn.
    Anyone saying diffrently should check out how frostmourn looks like:

    Sure it could be longer, but who cares? Exept morons.

    Take it to Blizzard. I used the campaign screen Frostmourne. If I made another Frostmourne, the model would definitely exceed 500kb.

    Usually custom models have noticeably bad animations, however, these are rather good! Some of the animations remind me of World of Warcraft's Human animations too, so a great job there. 5/5.

    New update!

    - Modified the Spell Throw particles
    - Frostmourne changes color during Spell Throw animation
    - Frostmourne glow fades away during death.
    - Models ran through the MDX Squisher to save map space (does not show the new size in editor)
    - Frostmourne glow changed to a different shade of blue
    - Frostmourne has a bluish tint now

    P.S. The best viewing experience is in-game. Magos exaggerates the particles and glitches the walk animation on the shoulder.

    Still has one geoset animation to fix. Frostmourne remains purple in all the animations.

    Do you edit geoset animations in MDX format?

    Otherwise, you know what I think of the model. ^^

    Odd, it doesn't remain purple to me. o_O

    EDIT: You're thinking about the whole sword. That's a permanent color. For some reason, the color displayed in Magos and in-game is different. I'll experiment and give a new tint.

    Hmmm. No, I thought you only wanted to make it purple tinted during the spell throw animation.

    Btw it's very cool (of course the Lick King is cool, duh) how you used the rune textures for the Frostmourne glow.
